6. Cornelius Washington, DE, Georgia
Cornelius Washington spent most of the past four seasons in a reserve role. Still, he was making his way in the NFL and due to depth concerns had to start two games last season. The Lions, short on depth decided to make a move and invest in Washington this off-season, The case is still on whether he can be a real rotational player yet, and looking at the Bears depth chart they should be fine letting him walk.
7. Traded for Brian Price
The seventh round pick that Falcons gave Chicago turned out better than their own. The Bears took on troubled Buccaneers defensive lineman Brian Price in exchange for the pick. The Buccaneers wound up trading the pick, in a larger trade that involved Aqib Talib. The Patriots wound up taking Michael Buchanan, who has 12 career tackles and has not played since 2012. However, Price was cut in training camp, so the trade is a wash at best.
This has been the best draft since before 2007. Unfortunately, does not say all that much. Still, injuries and roster shuffling aside Long was a great hit who is still with the team and will likely always be with the tea. They got usage out of Washington and Wilson, and Mills found a way into looking like a decent fifth round pick, albeit elsewhere. Long carries the grade, but it is a passing draft.
